EPL: Pogba strike sends Man United top with win at Burnley

0

Paul Pogba’s second-half volley was enough to give Manchester United victory at Burnley and send them three points clear at the top of the Premier League.

United dominated a contest in which Burnley failed to register a single shot on target until stoppage time.

But they were struggling to make a breakthrough until Marcus Rashford picked Pogba out with an excellent cross to the edge of the area.

The Frenchman’s connection was perfect, although it took a deflection off Matthew Lowton to ensure the ball went past Nick Pope and into the Burnley net.

Although Burnley had three decent chances in a frantic ending, United secured the win to head the table after 17 rounds of matches.
